What are the differences between the LE and XLE trims?

The base LE and XLE trims on the 2018 Toyota RAV4 offer similar amounts of interior space, active safety, and performance. Crossover shoppers looking to choose between these two trims will need to decide if the upgraded amenities offered on the XLE trim are worth the starting price increase.

All 2018 Toyota RAV4 models come standard with the Toyota Safety Sense active safety bundle that includes Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and Automatic High Beams. Other features that are also included on all trims are power side mirrors, a rearview camera, Entune Audio, a 4.2-inch multi-information display, and selectable drive modes.

Crossover shoppers interested in upgrading to the XLE trim for additional amenities will unlock power heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, a moonroof, alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Three optional add-on packages, the Extra Value Plus Package, Extra Value Power Plus Package, and Extra Value Power Premium Package, are also available for XLE trims and provide additional options for customization and increased amenities without needing to move up to more expensive trims.
